Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Legislative Branch How a Bill Becomes a Law How it came to be... Step 1: A bill is introduced by the Senate. A bill is introduced by the House. Step 2: A hearing is heldto study the bill. A hearing is heldto study the bill. S H In 1787, the state representatives had a meeting to draft the U.S Constitution. They separated the governing powers into three branches. Each branch has checks and balances over the others. This being so no branch has too much power and no branch has control over the others. The 3 branches of government are the Legislative Branch, the branch that makes the laws, the Executive Branch, the branch that carry's out the laws, and the Judicial Branch, the branch that enforces the laws. Each branch is only in charge of their own jobs and no other branches. Step 3: The House votes on bill. The Senate votes on bill. Step 4: If the bill passes both houses, bill is sent to the President. Step 5: He can either sign the bill and it then becomes a law. -OR- He can veto thebill, which adds another step... Bill goes back to the originated house to be changed and voted on again. Step 6: Conflicts Between the 3 Branches The separation of powers is what keeps it so no governingpower controls the other ones. Checks and balances arecounterbalancing influences by which an organization or system is regulated. This means each branch has certain restrictions on what they can do. Keeping it so the branches have minimum conflicts.
